Questions from The Mummy Diaries...

  1. Why do you blog? To help new parents in the crazy world of babies. It's also a creative outlet and a nice change from being a mum.
  2. What's the best way to spend your weekend? With my family, walking the dog in the sunshine and having a long lazy lunch.
  3. What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you? Wow. That's a toughie... Off the top of my head - having my dress tucked into my very un-sexy knickers at a wedding (not particularly funny for me...)
  4. Where is your favourite place to be in the world and why? On a beach (any beach will do but let's say Hawaii...) crime novel in one hand and pina colada in the other
  5. What is your favourite colour? This changes regularly but today I'm feeling in an aquamarine kinda mood.
  6. Your favourite ever song and why? China in your hand by T'pau - takes me back to my childhood in a flash.
  7. What blogger do you look up to? The Unmumsy Mum for her normalness and the amount she has achieved through her honesty.
  8. How long have you been blogging? Since December 2015.
  9. What’s your favourite social media platform and why? Twitter - I never used it before last December but it has such a great supportive community (and people aren't allowed to waffle!)
  10. What's your favourite food in the world to eat? Banoffee pie. I would have it three times a day if that was considered normal (and my bum was immune to calories).
